Stardew Valley developer ConcernedApe had been working on a Wii U version of the farming simulation RPG over the summer. However, the developer has now announced that plans for the Wii U have been stopped. Instead, they are now looking to the future, setting their sights on the Nintendo Switch, saying they think that the Switch’s “unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley.”
Here’s ConcernedApe’s full comments regarding the Wii U cancellation from the Stardew Valley official site:
“Stardew Valley will not be coming to the Wii U, however. Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating a version for Nintendo Switch. I am really looking forward to the Switch, and I believe that the Switch’s unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley. I do want to emphasize that I am absolutely committed to seeing Stardew Valley on Nintendo platforms, and I really do appreciate your support and understanding in this.”
In addition, Stardew Valley will be releasing on the Xbox One in just a couple weeks. Here’s a look at it’s official trailer for the console:
Stardew Valley is available for PC. It will release for PlayStation 4 on December 13th in North America and December 14th worldwide, and for the Xbox One on December 14th.
